Every dark cloud has a silver lining. After Hurricane Sandy left Lower Manhattan powerless and Red Hook submerged, New Yorkers came together all over the city and throughout Brooklyn. It was then that Dave Hodge – the veteran Canadian musician (Broken Social Scene), arranger (Janet Jackson/Neptunes, Carly Simon), and composer (through his company Finger Music) was sitting in a café when his acquaintance Leah Siegel (Firehorse, The Citizen’s Band) walked by. The two had met while recording a TV spot years prior but hadn’t seen each other since. Maybe it was the post-Sandy you-only-live-once feeling but Dave asked Leah if she’d want to do some writing together. The result is Leisure Cruise.

Leisure Cruise’s debut track “Sailing,” which premiered on SpinMagazine.com, is a soaring journey of punchy synths and 80’s-inspired intergalactic vocals. We are extremely excited to welcome Leisure Cruise to the Last Gang family and are pleased to announce the release their debut full-length album on May 6th.
